    All boosting communities are "honest" until they get caught dealing in real money and get banned. Nobody organizes such a thing just for gold, the boosters themselves are puppets who do it for gold but the "managers" are in it for money. This is their real life "job".
    If that were true Blizzard has to be the most incompetent company in history when it comes to enforcing its rules because they've only ever done one ban on a major boosting community.

    Some people get the feeling that if they buy from these people they're somehow cheating Blizzard out of money, Blizzard still gets a sub from the farmers which they helped pay for. All they did was pay for someone else's sub to do something they themselves could have done in game...Blizz still gets money

    The spam is rediculous, adding more losers trying to sell shit for gold isnt changing much because its already realy bad.
    I don't think that calling and comparing a person who is desperate to buy food with no other choice, since the country is in hell and there are no jobs or anything, I mean I saw reports talking about medical specialists earning 8 dollars a month

    with people who decided to go against the Blizzard TOS to get some extra money to spend on random stuff is the best thing to do

    Against the ToS is a fair use of the word "illegal" just like in rugby it is "illegal" to clothesline someone in a tackle.
    The whole problem with the world is that fools and fanatics are always so certain of themselves, but wiser people so full of doubts.

    Alas, some gold sellers according to Blizzard, do get their gold from hacked accounts still.

    As for the token, well, the seller of the token wins by getting gold, and the buyer of the token gains game time - and Blizzard earns 7 Euro.
    Stuff can be fixed, just get enough glue or duct tape!

    It's already a big issue, and I don't think we should not ban gold sellers because they "might" be in impoverished countries making a living, if that was the question here.

    Yikes. Horrible, overly simplistic take.

    Those accounts are still paid for, if these hackers could hack free accounts I think they'd be skilled enough to do more than just gold farm

    I mean if they dont do it out in the open its not so easy to spot. Blizz probably doesnt have the resources to investigate what is basically legal money laundering
